Sora Kake Dora Index Witches-chan-ke
Posted by meronpan on March 18, 2009
Mmmm trying to figure out what to shoot next, not to mention my free time feels even more scarce than ever. Until that comes to fruition, let’s talk anime ^^ (don’t worry, should be spoiler free)
First off, 宇宙をかける少女 (sora wo kakeru shoujo, sora kake girl)!
As with most series, started out knowing practically nothing… got interested in the series after seeing the promo clip @ wonhobby 9 & noticing figures popping up already. Guess the figures aren’t so surprising when you see the show’s sponsor list…
^^; There’s also some other ad placements you’ll probably notice…
Personally I think it’s great. Go GSC! ^_^
獅子堂 秋葉 (shishidou akiha) is, as far as I can tell, the main character, who you meet soon after the first episode starts.
At first I thought the voice sounded familiar (moshikashite, hirano aya?!)… but after checking some sites… turns out it’s MAKO? Guess I might’ve been able to recognize her from School Rumble (ichijou karen) but nope ^^;
You also meet レオパルド (reoparudo, Leopard), an eccentric robot thing voiced by Lelouch Lamperouge err Fukuyama Jyun ^^; Unfortunately I can’t separate the voice from Lulu so it warps my perception of the Leopard character ^^;
Looks like these so called QT-arms (Quantum Technology Advanced Reinforced Maneuvering Shroud), centaur themed ship/mechs will play a decent role in the show…
Then there’s that weird pistol thing that I haven’t understood at all yet…
All in all, so far it’s got a good set of things to keep me interested.
- Weird hilarious computer/robot thing
- Transforming mechs
- tsuntsun character (one of akiha’s sisters)
- main character that seems well poised for a rise to power (of some sort ^^;)
Didn’t blow my socks off, but I’m eagerly watching to see where it’s all going ^^
Also trying to figure out why itsuki’s eyes are so weird…
Is that supposed to be future makeup or something? To me it just looks like she stayed up all night ^^;;
I think I’ve been enjoying it a lot ^^ Think I’m basically caught up now at episode 23? Keeping up with my no spoiler promise, all I’ll say is that ami-chan is the most level headed character… something I didn’t expect at all.
Kitamura’s character got a lotta attention for a bit, but alas it seems like lately he’s reverted to a secondary plot device (and occasional slap stick gag ^^;)
Really like the characters so it’s been a real treat… can’t wait to see how the show wraps up!
とある魔術の禁書目録 (to aru majyutsu no index)
Ok, I admit, the main reason I made it a priority to catch up on this series was to see what the hell this was about…
…that was a weird episode ^^; (15, if you’re wondering)
Biribiri, index, kaorin, aisa (mami-chan! ^^), misaka, last order, kuroko…. gaaa, it’s a pleasure whenever any of them is on the screen, so I’m glad I got caught up on this one too.
Been enough action for me, would have no problems if they just turned the show into a galge at this point :P
ストライクウィッチーズ (Strike Witches)
Mio’s voice seems kinda forced… When she’s doing her manly commander voice it just sounds like bad voice acting to me ^^;;; Other than that… this show is insane. It seems like it should be in that super fan-service category of shows like sekirei or such, but on the other hand it’s already had some touching moments in the first couple episodes.
Hahaha err no not the above. Since I’m only throught the first two episodes, I haven’t gotten to see much of the other girls yet, still trying to figure out the pantsu thing.
I hear Francesca is the loliest of the group? ^^;;;
Feels very similar to sky girls, except i think the Sonic Divers were much cooler. The Striker Units make the girls look rediculous ^^;;
I thought I heard that the plot was surprisingly good for a show whose premise seemed to be fan service. Luckily I fully approve of all fan service based shows, so regardless I think we have a winner :P
みなみけ おかえり (minamike okaeri)
If I remember this was getting a lotta flak like season 2?
I will say the art/animation kinda sucks in a lotta scenes but honestly, that’s not at all why I’m watching. Basically I’m just looking for the comics with voices added, so I’ve been enjoying this season a lot ^^
My big problem with season 2 was that I couldn’t get into the fuyuki character. Every scene with him was just ruined for me ‘cuz I was so bored/annoyed. With him out of the way in season 3, it’s just pure goodness straight from the comics. I figure, if I want the nice art, I’ll just grab a volume off my shelf.
hosaka and the other minami family… (natsuki cracks me up in particular)… they’ve been getting enough screen time to keep me happy and satisfied through 9 episodes so far.
涼宮ハルヒちゃんの憂鬱 (The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi-chan)
A perfect show for any watch list because each episode is less than 5 minutes long ^^;
Highly recommended to anyone who enjoyed the slice of (weird) life aspect of haruhi ^^
So that’s what I’ve been watchin’… you?
Unfortunately when I’m done with this I still have the following on my list…
- ef – tale of melodies
- itazura na kiss
- nabari no ou
- penguin musume heart
- rosario + vampire (2nd season)
- true tears
- zero no tsukaima (3rd season)
- jigoku shoujo (3rd season)
- ikkitousen (dd & gg)
- candy boy
- asu no yoichi
- kyouran kazoku nikki
- kurogane no linebarrels
- shikabane hime
- yozakura quartet
- mahou tsukai ni taisetsu na koto
- ga-rei zero
- macademi wasshoi!
- minamike okaeri
- tetsuwan birdy decode 2
… … … wish me luck ^^;
